Summer Wishlist

Summer Lust List
Summer is here and the warm weather means time for light and flowy frocks! Fall is my favorite season, so when I went to my closet the other day all I noticed was a sea of grey, black, and navy pieces. For so long I stayed away from color because I thought it made me look “young”, but this summer I am experimenting with different ways to incorporate color into my outfits, by wearing a colorful pattern or colored sandals. These items above are some of the summer pieces I am lusting after! This season I am in love with tribal inspired patterns, colored leucite frames, and strappy leather sandals. This outfit is the epitome of what I want to be wearing all summer long!

Ease Into Spring

Winter to Spring

Pre-spring lines have been out in stores since the begining of January and if you are anything like me you are itching to wear a great floral print or a blush tone bag. The weather is still a bit chilly, so if you are wanting to wear some of your new spring peices now, try to incorporate them with some of your cozy winter favorites.

Here are some ideas if you are lost, add a leather jacket over a floral print dress with a pop of color shoe and you have a chic downtown look.  A chunky winter sweater can be paired with an embelished skirt and a pastel bag. Keep your head warm with your floppy winter hat, but try it with a colorful maxi and a statement necklace. Play with items from all seasons and most of all have fun!

DIY Wrap Bracelet

We all know how popular the whole “arm party” has become and I know I am always looking for new bracelets to add to my arm party collection. When I first saw wrap bracelets I fell in love, but they were priced from $30- $100! I found the DIY on Pinterest and I now have a new hobby!

This is all you need for supplies: Fishing wire, Leather cord, beads of choice, and buttons. (I got all my supplies at Michael’s)

Here is my finished product 🙂

You can even make them for men …

I had a request from a dear friend of mine Kyla, she asked if I would a post about what to wear to an interview. She wanted a professional yet still fashionable outfit. This is hard because it depends on several factors: what the job is, where you are, and the company. These pieces I put together are what I think are essentials for a work wardrobe. I think it is important to have color and pattern in your work attire so that it’s not the same black, grey and brown you normally see in the work place. You can add color by your shoe or a skirt or even with a lip color. Essentials to have are a watch, a cute work/laptop bag, and a good blazer. Below are some inspiration outfits! Continue reading

Who needs a car when you can have a Birkin?

I was at my friend BreAnne’s house today when she told me that Rue la la was featuring Birkin bags, so I had to look. I always knew Birkin bags were so expensive, however for me I am in need of a new car soon and I can’t help but think you could buy a car for the price of a Birkin bag! Honestly I would take either if it was given to me, needless to say I spent a good 20 minutes looking at Birkin bags and everything Hermes, Swoon! (Check out the sale )

Love Jewel Mint

     Pretty sure I’m late on the Jewel Mint bandwagon, but I am in love! Recently I decided to join Jewel Mint I heard nothing but good things about it so I thought, it was time! I was pleasantly surprised, with the site and not to mention the prices! Everything is one price $29.99! Cheap if you ask me. If you choose to become a member each month there is a new collection you can choose one piece or as many as you for $29.99 each or skip a month it’s up to you. I am already thinking it will be hard to skip a month. Continue reading
